HONOLULU (AP) — A man wanted on child sex assault charges in Texas has been found and arrested in Hawaii.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force says 42-year-old Adrian Gamble was tracked down and arrested Thursday in Kapolei, a suburban community west of Honolulu.

Authorities say he is accused of having sexual contact in 2008 with a 9-year-old child he was caring for.

The Marshals Service says a grand jury arrest warrant was issued by the Galveston County District Attorney's office in 2011 but he had already fled Texas.

He's in Honolulu police custody, pending an extradition hearing back to Texas.

It's not clear if he has an attorney.
